Limited Network Connectivity
A Limited Network Connectivity message basically means that you have a weak connection or you have used a wrong passcode. Specifically, this is what it means:
Your computer detects that a network is present and operating. That means that it detects that the network cable is plugged in, or that it was able to connect to a wireless access point. Your computer’s request for an IP address went unanswered.
Many a times, the problem appears because of wrong icon mapping. So the first thing you should do if you see a Limited Network Connectivity message is to ensure that all your cables are connected properly and the reboot your router and restart your computer. Turn off your Wi-Fi interface and turn it back on again. Restarting the computer helps reset the internal modem. This will help get rid of the problem in most cases.
